The Official Guide to Roger Wilco's Space Adventures is an officially authorized guide to the Space Quest series published by Comptue Books. The first edition (ISBN 0-87445-237-0) was published in 1991 and covered the first four games in the series; a second version released in 1993 (ISBN 0-87445-281-8) added coverage of Space Quest V. Authorship of the first edition is credited to Jill Champion and Richard C. Leinecker, while only Champion is given credit for the second.

The book contains extensive (though not entirely explicit) walkthroughs for each game, presented in the form of a narrative account by Roger Wilco himself. Unlike The Space Quest Companion, which was a full novelization of the games from Roger's perspective, the accounts provided in this book are more of an internal running dialogue of Roger's thoughts during his adventures. Both editions of the book also contain an "exclusive interview" with Roger.

Behind the scenesEdit

  • The section on Space Quest I differs between the two editions. The first release has a novelization for the orignal Space Quest: The Sarien Encounter; the second provides a novelization for the Space Quest I: Roger Wilco in the Sarien Encounter remake.
  • Excerpts from the book were published three times during Sierra's run of magazines. First time was in the Sierra/Dynamix News Magazine, Summer 1991. The second and third time were in the InterAction Magazine in the Summer 1992 and later in the Fall 1994 issues.
  • It's interesting to note that editions compared to The Space Quest Companion take different approach to dealing with the Spider Droid. With one using the Spider Droid to take out the Orat, and the other book series uses the dropping a rock on the Spider Droid, and using the dehydrated water to take out the Orat.
